Buy a Former Underground Station Turned WWII Bunker

A London Underground station decommissioned in 1934 and later used as a secret bunker by the Ministry of Defense will be sold off in September, 72 years after it was supposedly used for the interrogation of high-ranking Nazi official Rudolph Hess. Designed by architect Leslie Green, the man responsible for many of London's Tube stations, the Brompton Road Station retained its original tiled facade even after falling into the hands of the Defense Ministry. Also used during World War II by Prime Minister Winston Churchill as a command and control center, the building and its underground passages are expected to fetch at least $15M, thanks in part to the history, but probably more to a prime location just blocks from Harrods department store.
